There's a first for everything, right? I've seen a lot of baseball over the years, but never have I seen a paper airplane fly into the mix.
That's precisely what happened during the sixth inning of the New York Mets-Milwaukee Brewers game Saturday night, as a a giant-sized paper airplane found its way onto the field near second base. The commentary regarding the landing couldn't have been any better.
"What a landing," raved the play-by-play guy.
"That was kind of cool to watch," added the color commentator.
Not only were these two entertained by the mini airshow, but the players and fans seemed to have enjoyed the shenanigans as well. In fact, the loudest ovation all evening long likely came when the plane stuck its landing point.
So, if you're planning on making a trip to Miller Park anytime soon, be sure to keep your head on a swivel. You may just get blindsided by a flying object if you don't.

MILWAUKEE John Axford was tired and frustrated, but he knew what came next.
He had always been transparent with the media, welcoming interviews that came to his locker near the front of the Brewers clubhouse. But lately, the questions had grown tiresome. He knew he had to face up to the struggles he and the rest of his bullpen had dealt with, something hed already had to own up...
MILWAUKEE With a Tuesday return date in mind, Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart tested his injured foot by running the bases on Sunday morning, and the result wasn't what he had hoped for.
Affecting the arch of his left foot, Hart's plantar fascia injury limits his ability to make turns around the basepaths without serious discomfort. He said on Sunday that he...
MILWAUKEE It's no secret that Brewers pitcher Shaun Marcum hasn't been the same since returning from elbow tightness that kept him out for the better part of two months this season. In the five starts since his return, Marcum has averaged less than five innings per start and given up four runs in all but one appearance.
That's mostly because of his lack of command,...
MILWAUKEE Corey Hart is clearly eager to get back in the Milwaukee Brewers lineup sooner rather than later, given the team's newfound wild-card contention. And with a rupture in his plantar fascia in the arch of his left foot, Hart said he saw "a big improvement" since Wednesday.
On Friday afternoon, the Brewers first baseman took early batting practice and ran on...
As Chipper Jones continues his farewell tour across Major League Baseball, the Brewers may have given him the most unique gift he will receive.
MIAMI Yes, Giancarlo Stanton wants to one day win a home-run title.
You play this game to win championships and be the best we can. So thats part of it, yep, Stanton said.
But if you believe the Marlins outfielder is thinking of winning his first home-run crown this season, youd be wrong.
With 34, Stanton entered Saturday four home runs behind Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun...
Ryan Braun hit two home runs and rookie pitcher Wily Peralta gave up two singles in eight innings, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the New York Mets 3-0 Sunday.
The reigning most valuable player now has 201 home runs in his career, as Milwaukee won for the 20th time in its last 26 games to remain 2 1/2 games out of the second wild-card spot. The left fielder leads the league with...
Talk about a flight delay. A game between the Mets and Brewers was delayed when a paper airplane flew on to the field.The hitter, Aramis Ramirez, stepped out of the box to allow the airplane to be taken off of the field.It's a pretty big one. I'm glad it didn't hit anyone in the eye.Watch the clip right here:Your browser does not support iframes.
The Brewers are threatening to make it into the wildcard, and their playoff hopes are still alive. The Mets are standing in their way, and a three games series with the Mets will be basically a win or go home scenario. Milwaukee sits just 3 games back of the wildcard spot, after being 12 ½ games back of that same wildcard spot just about a month ago.
